NATIONAL BECOMES NATIONALIST
Having established a type, Balakirev went on to develop it. Six years later, in 1864, he produced a second Overture on Russian Themes that marked as great an advance over his first in formal scope and symphonic procedure as the first had marked over Kamarinskaya. At the same time it exhibited a new determination on the composer's part to purify the national character of his style. In their symbiosis these two traits marked a new stage in the emergence of oak from acorn, because in conjunction they led to an unshakeable perception of programmatic content in the music.
